Sandy Lloyd did exactly what I wished her to do in my review of Book One in the series. It focused on one set of problems, it was half as long and every moment felt like a commitment by Lloyd to her readers, nothing seemed wasted..
Carol Dines' Performance seemed improved as well. Perhaps because the above mentioned reasons. 4 stars!
Des N Terry are "Sin" and Avery's [the main characters from book 1] best friends/sibling. They have arrived in Las Vegas for A destination wedding for the pair. However, before any celebration can commence Terry finds herself in a situation. Much to her chagrin she must ask Des , her ex-fling, for help. From that point on, it is nonstop action!
Based on this installment I recommend this book without hesitation.I am actually looking forward to the third installment in the series.
This is definitely a bit spicier and it begins right away.

This is a great addition to Sandy Loyd's romantic suspense series, DC Bad Boys. The first book, The Sin Factor, was my introduction to this very talented author. This was Des and Terry's story, which takes place in Las Vegas where the whole gang goes for Sin and Avery's wedding. I love when an author takes a fairly unlikeable character from one book and turns them around in the next book by showing their point of view. Loyd does this with Terry, Avery's sister from The Sin Factor. Of course, I loved Des in the first book. Loyd writes suspense and mystery very well, but I missed the interplay between the secondary characters that was such a big part of the first book, especially between Des and Scotty. I hope Scotty gets his own book (hint, hint). This one focused much more on the hero and heroine, and the other characters weren't in it quite as much. Loyd writers terrific characters, giving lots of detail and quirkiness to the minor characters. Like the first book, Raising the Stakes had twists and turns that kept me guessing.
Carol Dines did a good job narrating. I especially like the voice she used for Des.
